Curved TV vs Flat TV
In 2013 came the era of curved TVs, which will replace flat screens. At least that’s what some TV and monitor manufacturers thought.
But the question arises whether the flat TV provides a better picture perception, or it’s a marketing ploy, designed to maximize sales and profits.
Advantages of curved TVs according to manufacturers
Samsung: Better image visually the TV screen seems bigger.
LG: focuses on the other, the entire TV screen is equidistant from the viewer, the image objects retain their size. LG has demonstrated its vision of the benefits of curved TVs in the following images.
But let’s think about the magnitude of the curvature of the TV screen about 5 cm. And range finding from the TV viewer at a distance of 3-5 meters, whether any effect. On such a small change in the critical plane visually viewer will not notice the change in the image. So this statement can be safely attributed to the marketing course.
Deficiencies or what modestly silent producers. Silent about the features curved screens, namely that equidistant from the screen viewer will be exactly centered on the screen, if it will be the side that image distortion image will be larger than the screen flat TV.
This happens due to the fact that the on-screen viewer will look at different angles, near corner of the TV it will have a more acute angle at the far lesser vice versa.
The viewer sees the objects on the screen for about such.
When the viewer is placed in front of the center of the TV screen, the image will be distortion-free, when viewed from the side the image distortion will be greater than in a TV without curves.
Curved TVs are a tribute to fashion, similar to the LG G Flex and Galaxy Note Edge, the real advantages the viewer does not get, but overpays for the technology of production.
The history of curved TVs
TVs with curved displays were produced only in the higher price segment. Firstly, the technology is quite expensive and the TV is a bit more expensive, and secondly, it’s unusual. In the following years, manufacturers did not modernize the screen production plants, the number of curved TV models gradually decreased. These TVs have moved to the middle price segment.
Eight years of curved TV production, showed quite a little interest in these TVs. The complexity of production, low demand, the difficulty of installing such a TV on the wall, makes it not very attractive to buy such a TV for some categories of buyers.
